Cardinal Turkson speaking at SCU

SANTA CLARA — Responding to the teachings of Pope Francis to engage in dialogue about the challenges and needs of planet Earth in an era of intense climate degradation, Santa Clara University is hosting a two-day conference Nov. 3-4, Our Future on a Shared Planet: Silicon Valley in Conversation with the Environmental Teachings of Pope Francis.

In June, Pope Francis released the encyclical called "Laudato Si" ("Praise Be") on the environment and the global challenge of climate change.

The conference at Santa Clara University (SCU) will be headlined by Cardinal Peter Turkson, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, who is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential Vatican authorities on the content of the encyclical.

Public events on Nov. 3 will include a liturgy at 11:30 a.m., celebrated by Cardinal Turkson, followed by a 3 p.m. keynote address by the cardinal. Both events will be in Santa Clara University's Mission Church, 500 El Camino Real, Santa Clara. A full list of events and registration information is available at scu.edu/ourcommonhome/events.cfm.
